Well thats good to know
Yeah, thats one of the big drawbacks of film really.... its not too cheap to shoot I think I've worked out a reasonably cheap way of doing it, at least for the time being. For 35mm, If I choose to have the negatives scanned to CD it would cost me £0.26 per frame, or If I scanned myself (will try and do this in future) it would cost £0.22 per frame. This is worked out sending 2 rolls at a time for development, and shooting 36 ex rolls of Fuji Supiera. It doesn't...
The more modern plastic SLRs are way more convenient to shoot, but a lot less hipstery At least with Nikon you can use the same lenses on both to an extent. Although saying that this isn't the case for me, I asked on a fb group and they came to the conclusion my FE has been dropped at some point and the lens mount has been knocked slightly to the point some more modern lenses won't mount, so I can't use my 35mm f/2D If it shoots ok I'll just carry on using it as-is, If...
Right now its loaded up with Poundland's finest Agfa Vista 200 which I'm using to test it. After that its probably onto Fuji Superia 200 which I think I've got a roll or two left in the freezer. That's probably what I'll shoot the most, but I do plan on trying some other film, like Kodak Ektar, Ilford Pan F, Delta or FP4.Since I'm mostly going to be scanning the negs for online use I don't want to go crazy with expensive film all the time. I would stick to Agfa vista but...
Doooooooo it, give it some film... To be fair I could do with trying to get rid of my other cameras that I'm just not going to use now I have this. I'm not really a collector, but I've got a fair few bodies that I haven't, and probably never will put any film through.
I know its almost 3 weeks old.... but noice.. Over here things have been going a little backwards.... like back to the early 80s It's a Nikon FE (yeah yeah, cheapo electric version of the FM ) which I only got a few days ago. After a clean up and replacing a few light seals and the mirror damper she's all ready to go. I took it out today and its so satisfying to use, its like nothing I've ever shot before. Hopefully the photos turn out alright, because so far...
I did see something about a D3300 replacement being in the pipeline, but thats the last I heard of it When Nikon normally launch something it pops up on my facebook news feed like BUY ME!! BUY ME!! Not that I'd be interested in another DX camera now, my next one is going to be another full frame body.
Ooooh, so the D3400s are out in the wild now
Random news, but I've got my first wedding job booked in It's something I've been hesitant to step into, but this opportunity came up so I decided to take it. It's for a sort of friend, and they aren't made of money so that kind of works with my inexperience and how much I'm willing to do it for It's about 6 months away, but I'm already thinking about it, got to put in the leg work checking out the church, getting some shot ideas together, etc.. Need to get a bit...
Same here, my catalogs are pretty much disposable. I do my organisation myself, just drag the folder into lightroom, and have it set to write changes to .xmp files..... sorted
